It is going to be real tough time for all those coaches and sports officers who have failed to deliver results.

Chetan Chauhan, Youth affairs and Sports Minister of the UP government had made it clear that such coaches and officers are not required who are not training the sportsmen standing there at the ground.

In a program here, the sports minister warned those coaches and officers of the sports department who are not working properly and said that they should either improve or be ready to face action. There are coaches who have no knowledge about the modern techniques and hence they are failing to give results, he said.

“Sports is austerity, practice, religion and god. In the ground, the sportsman sees nothing but his goal. I have spent 11 years of my life playing at international level and yet if some sportsmen face partiality than I would not like it,” said Chauhan, former opening batsman and now the sports minister of UP. 

"I am aware that there is a great talent in the sportsmen of the city but there are some coaches whose attitude is not correct and they keep sitting in the offices during the training sessions, he quipped.

“Now the time has some when the coaches will have to be on the ground to train the sportsmen,” he cleared saying that salary would not be given for resting. 

They should improve or else they would not be spared.

Continuing his speech, Chauhan told that every sport will have a trainer and all coaches would be given targets. Old coaches would be trained on new techniques. “ If there would be no medals in Olympic, Asian and Commonwealth games in four years that they would show the way out. 

Besides to promote sports centers would be opened up in city and rural areas and youths would be associated. The minister said that he would also consult sports businessman and gold medalist sportsmen and discuss with them the strategy for next 2-3 years.
